Purple Day is an international day dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy.
Do you need an excuse to revisit Harold and the Purple Crayon and to have fun drawing with purple? Well here it is. Get out the library's many copies of this classic book and its spin-offs and have a purple day! While you're at it here are two other 'purple' books to add to the fun.
And if you need to explain epilepsy to children the series that stars the Great Katie Kate has a book about epilepsy.
I'm a teacher/librarian in an early childhood school library. The library caters for 3-8 year old children, their teachers and their parents.
My aim here is to showcase at least one book each day until there is ' a year in a Prep School Library'. Usually the date will be the birthday of someone who is connected with Children's Literature.
I have met my initial challenge to write about a book every day, so now I write much more intermittently when I have learned of a new birthday, special day, have had a wonderful teaching moment or have found a great new book.
